McLaughlin "WORLD CHAMPION" HULL - The Pro-Racer hull is built on a Thursday to allow 4 days residence in the mold. This assures the hull shape is totally rigid and will not change. We then further refine the bottom, edges, centerboard slot and rig it with the most modern systems and hardware available. You, the racer, can specify equipment, non skid aggressiveness and cosmetics such as metal flake, clear transom etc. The hull is simply maxed out and breakdown free. It includes standard features top sailors demand; the strongest mast step attachment - so you'll never have to worry about it, precision appendage alignment check on every hull, and wall to wall non-skid. If it is the best, it is on your Optisailors Pro-Racer.
